ZDMP offers an open Industry 4.0 environment where a new generation of developed zero-defect service applications will be available in a marketplace contributing to create an ecosystem where ZDMP stakeholders would be able to interact with each other.

MX3D is developing a solution to address consistency problems in robotic AM. Universal Calibration Tool for Robotic Additive Manufacturing (UCRAM) will be a tool that monitors the layer build-up, either to measure and calibrate the material build-up beforehand during a calibration procedure or monitoring it layer-by-layer as the print progresses. The tool will create a digital twin of the printed part, by scanning each layer, building up a 3D-image that can be used for review or to overlay with other available data sets. A simple, fast, and low-cost tool for defect detection and quality control in any type of robotic AM to achieve zero-defect additive manufacturing.
